I began painting twenty-five years ago. I studied drawing and painting for six years and my first success was a solo exhibition of watercolours in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.
I moved to Thailand in 1992, and the flowering of inspiration led me to focus my creative attention on the country’s culture and historic monuments. I now use the inspirational shapes and colours of Asia in a semi-abstract style to achieve the effects I desire in watercolour.
Ten years later, I was fortunate enough to travel to the Canary
Islands and Morocco. This gave me inspiration to portray new
scenes and sights in my paintings.
I moved to Truro, Cornwall in September 2003, where I am a
member of the Truro Art Society and take part in their Selected Summer Exhibitions; The Riverside Gallery in Golant has also showed my work of local scenes.
Since a visit to Cambodia in spring 2007, I have been inspired by Angkor Wat and its amazing atmosphere, architecture and history.
I am primarily a watercolourist and I trust that my freedom of expression will be felt by all, and hope that everyone will be uplifted by the spirit of the subject matters which have caught my attention.
I continually search for colourful and atmospheric themes and these I find both at home and abroad.
